Deleting running files

When I used the latest version of McAfee Antivirus, I noticed that myaarpmedicare the shred feature can delete running files and then asks you to restart your computer. Do anyone know how does it delete running files without closing them?

Greetings from McAfee!

Kindly refer the below article that helps you with the detailed information about the shred feature.

Note : kindly close all the running applications on your computer before using the shred feature.
